Thrup’nny Bits is a three voice unaccompanied harmony group singing traditional and contemporary folk songs with some Early Music and humourous songs for good measure. They like to feel their performances have light and shade.
The group evolved from the four part Ninepenny Marl after one of its members became unwell.
Gareth and Barbara Wyatt and Des Patalong come from Warwickshire and Coventry and are well known on the local folk scene having been in various line ups in the past, and Des is currently a member of “Sharp as Razors” – a shanty crew.
The group have had appearances at Bedworth Folk Festival and Folk Club, Warwick FC, Rowington FC, Harbury FC, Bromsgrove FC, Brackley FC, Chipping Norton FC, Black Diamond FC, Banbury FC, Shirley FC, Alcester FC and Warwick Folk Festival . They’ve also appeared at The Nursery Tavern in Coventry and at Kristy Gallagher’s session at The Royal Oak in Kenilworth.
The group have completed their first CD available now and called “Here’s a Bumper”.
